Yom HaShoah event at the Wimbledon Synagogue

Wimbledon, 6.5.2024 – The Wimbledon Synagogue solemnly marked Yom HaShoah with a memorial service that drew a significant number of attendees from the community and beyond. The service was dedicated to remembering the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and honouring the survivors and their legacies.

Guest speaker, Mr. David Wirth, delivered a poignant narrative of resilience and hope as he recounted the harrowing stories of his parents’ survival during one of history’s darkest times. His testimony served as a powerful reminder of the atrocities of the Holocaust and the importance of keeping these memories alive for future generations.

The service was graced by the presence of notable public figures, including the MP for Putney, Ms. Fleur Anderson, and the Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Juliana Anna. Their attendance underscored the community’s commitment to standing together against antisemitism and all forms of hatred.

The Wimbledon Synagogue extends its heartfelt gratitude to all who attended and contributed to the service’s profound impact. As we reflect on the past, we reaffirm our dedication to building a future free from prejudice and injustice.
